I saw two turtles today. One small guy was on a floating log when a much larger guy tried to join him on the log. Little guy flipped off the spinning log and the big guy was too big for the log and couldn't climb aboard. It was a funny sight to see.

Happy turtle day, Ryan!

Exploring new places! (Can’t figure out how to make the ‘E’ bold on my iPad!)

And, maybe, if I am lucky, going to EAA Airventure in July, the world’s largest aviation get together! (Dunno, flying from San Francisco to Oshkosh, WI in a tiny plane takes days...)

We are at the starting line of summer! Enjoy!

Falcons. We love to see birds of prey. Especially kites. We look for them everywhere.

That's what I was about... they took the little tag that offered help with markup codes away...

BTW two asterisks ** before and after the target letter group will do the bold..

You can find the list under your message preferences.. that is where I found it...

you can set for HTML or Wiki formats.

Planters with new Plants all around me. Been a long time since there were active boxers in my area, years ago it was a hotbed. And now, well, not even a single PAL Day plant in all of Washington.

Quality. Quality plants that don’t disappear. I’m talking about my own boxes. I have several I need to recarve & replant. I feel like I’ve learned a lot over my almost year of boxing. Hoping to have my boxes live in the wild for a long time.

I can’t find a board for cruise ships. Is there a place to check with other boxers if we are on a ship together. All those thousands of people must have a boxer or two aboard. I’m looking for a way to connect. Thanks

Not the only one NOT on fakebook. If I want to ask opinions of random people, I'll turn around in line at the grocery store. Besides, most of those folks are the ones i skipped school to avoid. Heh.

Hunger Game Game ideas
Board: Yakking It Up

So, as I have mentioned before I do a lot of "fun" activities at work to kinda keep things festive. Well, I was asked to set up a Hunger Game game, and I am very pleased to how much people are liking it. I was very nervous to do it, especially since I never really watched the movies or read the books. But my co-workers seem to really like it.

Anyhooo..... my dilemma and hence need for suggestions or ideas. Okay, so, every district started out with a number of Food and a weapon. The "better" the district, the higher the food and the better the weapon. I assigned each weapon a Ranking so when they "faced off", the volunteer with the higher ranking weapon would always win. And yes, I made it a rule that once you kill off another district you get their food and their weapon, which you can combine to have a much higher ranking weapon(s).

Here's my dilemma..... how do I resolve a "face-off" if the two volunteers have the same weapon ranking???? Say for example, they both have a Crossbow which is a ranking of 10? How do I decide who wins????? I have been avoiding Voting games to avoid hurting people's feeling. So.... suggestions, ideas, anything??? Please!

TIA
